Want Paradise? ~It~ is Here! 'Paradise' at a Bargain

Bedrooms 2
Property type mobile home
Minimum Stay 6 - 30 nights


About the property

Mobile Home, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

A Wildlife Paradise on the water across from a Bird Sanctuary and the Gulf of Mexico. Newly renovated, if you want quiet, it is here at Hiller's Hyatt of Hudson! Numerous bird species, including a 'pet' named Kramer, (a Great white egret), a Yellow Crested Night Heron named 'Zorro', A small yellow footed egret named 'Fast Eddie' (formally Yellow Foot), parrots, "Woody," aGreat Blue Heron, Rose spoonbills, wood storks, and a Bald eagle come by. Many roost in the Bird Sanctuary, part of the Werner-Boyce Salt Springs Park.

It is not unusual to see dolphin, manatees, and river otter come by. There is a nice Florida Room with view of water, as well as view of water and Gulf while cooking in the kitchen. Also, a screened in porch for cup of coffee and breakfast as well as a Pergola on the water side. After staying here, you will know why the West Coast is called the Nature Coast.

The sunsets are indescribable, but we think we captured a good one in the picture shown. Since you are staying on the last canal facing the Gulf of Mexico, seeing the sunset every night is a spectacular sight. Come stay at Hiller's Hyatt of Hudson and see why we are a A++++ rating !!

About Al & Carrie Hiller

We have lived in Paradise since 2005, loving every minute - the beautiful sunsets, the wildlife here, the warmer weather

Al & Carrie Hiller purchased this mobile home in 2004

Why Al & Carrie Hiller chose Hudson

Very quiet area - no neighbors across on the water side, just dolphin, birds, and manatees

What makes this mobile home unique

Good fishing even from the dock ! Bird sanctuary at Werner Boyce Salt Springs State Park end where a lot of species of birds roost every night, a sight to see ! If you are watching, you may see a dolphin or two fishing in the water, or a manatee family swim by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed the stay.................and the golfing.

Owner's Response: A real treat to have our first honeymooners! Although we did not have Hurricane Hermine hit along our area, we unfortunately had the storm surge and winds and this couple handled it well despite it being their honeymoon! The saying is make lemonade out of lemons....well this couple made delicious pear butter out of our pears, from the pear tree! . We thank them also for the Guest Book gift which was a great idea and addition to our place. Would love to see this couple come visit us again sometime, in better weather!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having Tom be able to stay comfortably and handle the tasks at hand that he had to do in the area. We are here if you ever need a place to stay or better yet, get away for some R&R.

Unique Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for peace and tranquillity with your morning coffee then this is the place for you but don't let that take away from the afternoons or evening enjoyment found on the patio just outside the back door. The changing of the tide as well as the bird watching (thanks to the sanctuary) right across the canal. You will be treated to daily visits from the birds such as Kramer, Fast Eddy as well as Woody, just to mention a few. As the view from the patio is westward, we were treated to amazing sunsets and a totally non "light polluted" skies for star gazing. The thrill you get the first time you see a dolphin pass by in the canal is unforgettable.

The place is so well equipped you will need for nothing and with large window in the newly renovated kitchen it not only provides a great view over the canal but is a dream to work in. We enjoyed the fact that we were close to anything you could want to do or see in Florida but yet still far enough away for the total relaxation. Al and Carrie are both wonderful people that are a fountain of information for almost any place to go or things to do while you are staying there. With great people like that who wouldn't want to go back again. Thanks Al and Carrie for a great vacation Bonnie & "T"

Owner's Response: This lovely couple became fast friends staying here with us in Paradise. We enjoyed their company on several occasions and missed them when they left. They were wonderful tenants - respected the property and left it spotless. We would love to have this couple back and are sorry they can't be back next year due to other obligations. Thank you Bonnie & T. for such a wonderful review. Please stay in touch, will you? Al & Carrie

Perfect place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed on the other coast of Florida for several years. The former place we had rented every April changed to a full time rental. We decided to try something different, got on VRBO and found this property. We decided to give it a try and couldn't have been any happier. The property is exceptionally clean, well maintained, and has great internet (fast) and includes a washer/dryer and cable television. Everything is comfortable and clean. Al and Carrie are the nicest people you will ever expect to meet. Al showed me how to fish there and was kind enough to take me fishing on 2 occasions. We live in Alaska and the fishing was possibly better in Florida. You can catch lots of fish right off the dock, just get out early in the morning. The birds were great, we saw all of the birds on the website, some several times a day, (Cramer). Al and Carrie told us a lot about what to do in the local area and we found there were a lot of nice antique shops and good places to eat close to the rental. The neighborhood where the rental is located is a quiet residential area close to everything, but far enough from the "tourist traps" to be very relaxing and quiet. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and look forward to going back there again!!
